Comments: From the Playbill notes: "Foxfire glows in the dark in the forests of Southern Appalachia; it's a lichen which lives on dead fallen trees. It is also the name of a magazine in which for more than a decade the young people of Appalachia have recorded the beliefs and personalities of their grandparents' generation; the last of the indomitable pioneers who carved out of unwelcoming mountain soil not only a living but a tough, joyous way of life which has almost vanished now."
